It’s getting harder and harder to be a good leftist these days. As the high priests and priestesses of the PC cult keep narrowing acceptable points of view, reasonable liberals are finding it difficult to toe the line.
Consider the case of Bret Weinstein, the former professor of evolutionary biology at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. Weinstein, a supporter of the Occupy movement, was the victim of leftist mob hysteria for refusing to participate in the college’s racist “Day of Absence,” which called for white people, students and faculty alike, to refrain from coming to school for a day. The video of the incident with Weinstein is chilling, because of both the ferocious intensity and the abject stupidity of the student protesters.
Though Weinstein still considers himself a liberal, he is of the belief that the Left is destroying itself with its insistence on PC culture. “The question is, is the Left eating itself,” Weinstein said during a panel discussion on the subject. “There are a couple of ways we can answer this question, one is yes. Another would be, yes, of course it is.”
